The Housing counseling staff provides much needed services in the areas of:

  • Pre-purchase housing counseling
  • Mortgage default

Most services are provided to our clients at no charge.

In addition to working with clients who are in danger of losing their homes or apartments, we also refer potential first time homebuyers to programs teaching purchase procedures and requirements of making their initial home purchase. In the process of working with these clients, they are educated on proper budgeting processes to help them prevent occurrences of a negative financial situation.

We collaborate with other United Way agencies and other social service agencies to ensure that people are able to receive any other help that may be available to them.
